Pittsburgh Opera’s 36th annual season-ending fundraising gala, Maecenas XXXVI, went digital this year for our Maecenas Mask-erade, broadcasting on Sunday, June 14th!

The Maecenas Mask-erade was a completely virtual event that combined many components of in-person Maecenas galas with special surprises we could only bring to you online! Tickets to our full Maecenas Mask-erade Gala are still available online. Virtual gala guests receive a special link to our video Mask-erade via email. All content will be available to ticket holders until June 21st.

This evening featured multiple performances by Pittsburgh Opera’s acclaimed Resident Artists, a video retrospective including long-lost performance footage from deep within Pittsburgh Opera’s archives, plus our annual award ceremony celebrating two very special Pittsburghers.  

The evening kicked off with a FREE Virtual Red Carpet hosted by syndicated Ask Natalie advice columnist and former editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s SEEN column Natalie Bencivenga. Streaming live on our Facebook page, Natalie looked back at the glitz and glamour of past Maecenas galas as we counted down to the start of Maecenas XXXVI.

Just because we couldn't be together in person doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot to celebrate!
